Drinking fountain and trough at Whitehouse

Water trough and fountain at the junction of the A944 and the Keig Road. Sadly, this would appear to have been hit by a vehicle within the last few years and is also suffering badly from subsidence. Wouldn't it be nice to see it restored and filled with water once more?

24th May 2009 Update: The fountain is in imminent danger of collapse and desperately needs work to stabilise and restore it.

Comments:
The trough and fountain were erected by George Farquharson of Whitehouse to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of HM Queen Victoria in June 1897. The metal tap on the left bears the notice 'Patented in Kilmarnock' - home of the Shanks company I believe.
